Since the discovery of DNA and the double helix in 1953 and the successful completion of the Human Genome Project in 2003, the field of genetics has expanded even further thanks to at-home genetic tests such as 23andMe.
Ever since 23andMe’s Health + Ancestry Personal Genetic Service was approved by the FDA in 2015, millions of people around the world have purchased these kits, which cost between $99 and $199 depending on which features are included. Customers mail saliva samples for testing in the lab to learn more about:
- their family history,
- and maybe even their risk for certain health conditions.
